GoFarm - Local, Fresh Produce in Golden
GoFarm is a local non-profit supported by Calvary because of its mission to increase access to more affordable fresh, healthy food in the greater Golden area. By ordering a local food share, you will not only receive high quality, fresh food grown or raised locally throughout the season, but you will also positively impact the health and vitality of our community, as all proceeds support GoFarm outreach programs to seniors, schools, limited-income families and farmers.
For more information and to sign-up for shares, go to the website at: www.gofarmcoop.org

Diapers and Detergent Drive, May 1-31
Throughout the month of May, Calvary will be collecting donations of diapers (all sizes) and laundry detergent that will be distributed to refugee families through Lutheran Family Services, International Rescue Committee (they currently have 21 expectant mothers!) and African Community Center. These are much needed items that most of the families cannot afford. Children’s Outreach will also be participating in the drive.
